|Happy Me, pumped up on my berry, greek yogurt smoothie and fish oil for Kayleigh's Birthday. MMMM|
|Ryan took this picture of me while out for dinner last night, I think that's my "For the love of God take the dessert away" face.|
I was at a family function last week, and telling my sister in law about my latest adventures in protein (pretty exciting stuff) and she said something that kind of stuck with me, she said I can be a bit 'obsessive'. Who me? Its not like I only talk about scrapbooking, kids and working out? Oh wait I do! So that being said, I think I have made some great discovereis on the nutrition side that are going to help me get to where I ultimately want to be, BUT I also need to RELAX and eat a flipping piece of cake and down it with a cold beer and just let it be.
I workout hard, really hard. I love it. I love the sweat, the burn, the accomplishment, the high. The exercise piece comes really easily for me. I have been successful in loosing weight because of this. But I think if I tackle the food part of this venture with the same attitude I am going to end up in the crazy place. I have learned some really good things about what I should be choosing to eat. But I also need to relax and not be 'obsessive' about it. I really don't like how grumpy I have felt this week, and stressed. The craziest part is that 'stress' can actually make you gain weight. So you see I think I am farther ahead if I eat that cupcake :) wink.
